Holy Play Will Enrich Your Life  Mar 24, 2007
I don't care who you are or who you know, you will benefit from reading this book. I am going after my goals and dreams already, but "Holy Play" encourages even further creativity in your life. Holy Play takes you on a journey of ideas that encourage you to create the life you want to live. I believe we are giving up our greatest gift from God by constantly awaiting for Him to "show" us what our purpose is, claiming, "I'm waiting to see what God has planned". The reality is God is going to use what we do for His glory. But it is up to us to decide what we love, and what we have a passion for. God would have made us puppets if he wanted to live our lives for us. Holy Play encourages you to empower yourself, and realize the God-given gift of creativity.

Back in high school, I vowed to make a living doing something that I love....music. Not only did I want to perform music, but also write my own music, have other singers record songs of mine, and own a music label. I used to feel pressure when heading in or out of church hearing common church-goers make comments such as "He's going to be like his father"(go into the pastorate), or ask, "Are you thinking about seminary?" Though I admire and respect my father, and all that he has accomplished, I have my own life to live.

My father told me that whatever I do, he will be proud, and will support me. He also stressed that if I was not getting enjoyment out of what I do, then why not do something that I enjoy? God feels the same. He wants us to live and unleash our power as humans to create a life of fulfillment. A lot of times, people force themselves to stay in jobs or careers because it's financially comfortable (pays the bills), they fear making a change and failing, or they just have not embraced the fact that they can create the life they want to live. Or... they might be awaiting a sign from God. You know that passion that you feel when you do the thing you could do all day and not be paid for it? That might be it. You know the commercials you see on TV and think, "That could be me." That's the sign. Stop thinking that you should be doing it, and DO IT!

I'm reading this book again, with a highlighter this time. This is the best book to give as a gift, and I have made a promise to myself, that I would buy "Holy Play" as a gift, for any upcoming occasion this year. The power in the words alone is priceless, and will change lives.
 
Ready for my Journey of Purpose and Passion  Mar 22, 2007
First, I would like to say that I am so proud that you are my father and proud of this fine piece of work that you have here. I have enjoyed every word of this book and it only took me 3 days to finish it!!! It's so easy to read and the examples of books, music, movies, and even our family, made the book so real and enjoyable. You have worked so hard and I know this book will change lives. It's already changed mine. I have questioned my purpose for so long and can't seem to figure out the one thing that gives me joy. You have helped me realize that my purpose doesn't have to be just one thing, it can be many. No wonder why I have so many interests! God doesn't want me to stick with just one thing, he expects me to create new goals, take on new challenges and do them to the best of my ability, with "great joy" of course. I recommend this book to all persons who are struggling with their calling and even if you don't have issues with your purpose, know that there are many paths you can choose in life, which ever one you choose god is with you every step of the way. Thanks Dad!!
 
One of the best books on vocational discernment  Mar 2, 2007
I am a spiritual director who works with lots of people facing vocational crossroads in life. I LOVE THIS BOOK. On so many levels. First, it's imminently readable and personal. Second, it is a book about discernment that takes ethnic diversity seriously---it's not all stories from European mystics! And finally it emphasizes joy and freedom, something Christianity is sadly not always known for emphasizing. I read a LOT of books on discernment as this is one of my specialties in spiritual direction. So many of the books are esoteric and heady. I found Holy Play refreshing in its simplicity while not losing any of the profound mystery that goes along with discernment. I would recommend this book to anyone facing a change in life that they want to understand better spiritually. Kirk Byron Jones is a gift in that he exudes confidence in the human person's freedom and in God's delight in our freedom.
